  1. Are the fixture dates out then.?
  2. Your not pedantic at all Ron. You know me and stats. I love this Forum when it is used like this. Now to your calculation of average gates. You're not going to believe this but for for some incredible reason I left out The Barrow gate when we visited Coventry. The gate was 447. A genuine mistake. honest. My resignation will be in the post. lol
  3. I have calculated this seasons CH! gate attendance averages and I get the following figures (League games only) Toronto 6737 Newcastle 1047 York 927 Barrow 896 Keighley 744 Workington 696 Whitehaven 659 Doncaster 597 Skolars 485 Hunslet 424 North Wales 340 Coventry 401 AMENDED South Wales 252 Gloucester 205 Oxford 166 Hemel 105 Apart from the fact that all the gates are dreadful apart from Toronto Barrow seem to have the highest gates consistantly. Some gates give misleading reading such as Haven & Barrow.
  4. I see that the Board have gone back to Sunday 3.00pm and I applaud this but I think I have demonstrated on this Forum that thir is little difference in gates whether it is Saturday or Sunday. It is patently clear to me that there are 2 major factors. One is the standard of opposition and the other is the performance on the field. The performance against Whitehaven will certainly not help. It should also be remembered that apart from possibly York at the moment we are the best supported side in the Championship. The gates of Rochdale, Sheffield and Swinton in the Championship are generally lower than Barrow. This week Sheffield was 329.
  5. I've seen it pointed out on Face Book that because we lost the Whitehaven game will be away rather than a lucrative home game which could cost us a lot of money.
  6. The worst part was the last 20 minutes Mick.
  7. As far as I can see we have home games against York, Doncaster, Keighley and Workington together with away games against Toronto, Whitehaven & Newcastle. I don't know what dates the games are played on. If I am right it's more than Radio Cumbria know. The points we get are then added to the league table.
  8. Dreadful and very dissapointing. Judging by the commentary the Barrow performance has been littered by mistakes and penalties. We seemed to have lost an awful lot since the mid week game against Keighley. Just look at the results of all the games. The game degenerated into a full scale battle and it seems that the referee was not strong enough. High tackles have been poorly penalized by both time. The match has ended but no excuse for some of the high tackles etc. Attendance about 1500. I think a lot of the good work this season has been ruined. Just my opinion.
  9. Haven player in sin bin. Haven penalty making score 14-6 to Haven.
  10. Sorry it was 12-0 to Haven but Barrow have scored and it's 12-6.
  11. 18-0 Haven now. Barrow being completely outplayed
  12. Try http://www.bbc.co.uk/radio/player/bbc_radio_cumbria
  13. Barrow losing 0-12 and Wilkes in sin bin. Barrow giving too many penalties away. All one way traffic.
  14. This is as promised on other streams. Sorry about any errors and I'm sure Steve Andrews will spot these. As I've already said The gates seem to vary more with the standard of opposition rather than whether the game is played on Saturday or Sunday. This point is open to argument.

  15. I have analysed gates from 2013-2017 and tried to show whether Sat or Sun. I'll put figures on here as soon as I can but as far as I can see the day of the match does not seem to affect gates. The biggest thing of all seems to be the standard of the opposition. You can do anything with stats.
